The University of Maryland Eastern Shore celebrates their #16 rank as it is a step closer to President Heidi M. Anderson’s vision of being a “Top 10” historically Black institution. UMES ranks one notch higher than a year ago and parallels the highest peer rating since 2007. This marks the third consecutive year since Dr. Anderson began to challenge the faculty staff and alumni to move the university into the upper tier of acknowledgement.
“We have put a number of programs in place to intentionally move us up in the rankings and I am thrilled they are bearing fruit!” said Anderson. “It’s not just about moving up a rankings list; it’s about the world knowing the University of Maryland Eastern Shore is a powerhouse for teaching, research, and service to our community and that we are soaring above and beyond.”
